Pythonpy also supports ipython style tab completion, which you can enable by adding the following to your .bashrc

::

  $ if command -v find_pycompletion.sh>/dev/null; then source `find_pycompletion.sh`; fi

::

The tab completion has a few quirks, all of which are necessary evils. If you find any regressions in behaviour, please report them though.
